This is the market we usually go to for our regular shopping. You’ll find everything there, fruits, vegetables, flowers, great fishes and a few locally produced products such as honey, cheese, etc.
The market is situated on the ‘Place du Général de Gaulle’ in Nice, at the top of boulevard Malausséna and the beginning of boulevard Joseph Garnier. There is a large parking, but the market being very popular, it is not easy to find a parking spot.
Whilst this is mainly a fruit and vegetable market there are also several fishmonger stalls.
One of the main characteristics of this market is that the fruit and vegetable stalls are run by farmers and locals, who live in the nearby hills or in the plains of the Var. In recent years the number of “organic”products has risen here.
The market is busy every morning, and the activity never ceases between 8 am and 1 pm. Saturday and Sunday remain still the busiest days of the week. This market is open all year round and offers all seasonal products, which will allow anyone who can cook a little to prepare lovely fresh, healthy and well balanced meals.
We’re lucky not to live very far and to be able to go there a couple of times per week, because we prefer to buy ‘fresh products’ outside the big supermarkets. We never get tired of the magic of this place, the smell and taste of the fresh and healthy products. You will find most of the products you need to create a typical niçois dish.
